  1. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Trafic

    The film is well worth watching, but I am missing the sharpness and conciseness of "Playtime" and "Mon oncle". There are still many remarkable features, but although regarding the extremely innovative work with narrative sound design "Trafic" is a step backwards.

  2. Paul and Wade's rating of the film Trafic

    Glad to see this film again, though surely now for the last time. Some of the wonderful visual jokes have become for me a little tedious, in a way I think his earliest films could never become.

  3. Wasunan T's rating of the film Trafic

    i warned my mom several times not to dig her nose in the car...but i guess where else would she be digging her nose if it's not the traffic........

  4. Carlos Tejeda's rating of the film Trafic

    Artículo (suplemento cultural "It's playtime"):

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Trafic

    Ce n'est pas le chef-d'oeuvre de Tati, mais le film vaut le déplacement .....

  6. Renton47's rating of the film Trafic

    Tati continues his mockery of modernism, taking his barely-there insight on the road. Perhaps the one idea I truly liked in this were the brief interludes of people acting publicly in the perceived privacy of their cars. That and the mid-film pile-up which was truly inspired. Otherwise nothing special in Tati's tenet that technology progresses and humans flounder behind. I miss the magic here.

  7. João Eça's rating of the film Trafic

  8. James Mackin's rating of the film Trafic

    The last of the Hulot films, he advertises a camping car. A nice end for a cinematic legend.

  9. Aditya Jain's rating of the film Trafic

    Gorgeous colors and some delightful cinematography. Similar to Playtime in many aspects, Tati crafts yet another comical tale about the design of life

  10. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Trafic

  11. Michael Goetz's rating of the film Trafic

    I get the sense I'm in the distinct minority when I say this, but I prefer Trafic to Playtime. No accounting for taste as the saying goes; but I found the self-enclosed space of Playtime a little arid. With Trafic, you get out into the fresh air, on the road with some delightful characters. The set-piece gags are funny and choreographed beautifully, and the frames are still amusingly busy and surprising. Primo Tati.

  12. SpacePirate's rating of the film Trafic

    Another visually brilliant Tati film. Not quite the masterpiece of Playtime, but perhaps more fun? 4.5 stars

  13. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Trafic

    Tati understands the modern world in ways other directors don’t. He sees the humor and the absurdity, but he doesn’t put it down, he lovingly celebrates our silly societies with care and affection. He sees us struggle and sees how we move and relate and interact, and how we look when we are doing just that. He gets the beauty and humor in everyday life, and he helps the audience see his unique vision as well.

  14. Blumes's rating of the film Trafic

    The bitter end of Hulot

  15. Charles Coleman's rating of the film Trafic

    A Tati film with an actual plot, what a sell out! Kidding of course but the movie definitely feels like a strange hybrid of the themes explored in Playtime and Tati trying to make a more traditional comedy. Very uneven film and the movie never ends, too many clunkers. That said, that big wide shot at the end of the parking lot was pretty great.

  16. Charles1990's rating of the film Trafic

  17. robespiere's rating of the film Trafic

  18.'s rating of the film Trafic

    The scene when he's walking to get gas and there's the guy on the other side of the highway going the other way is one of the funniest gags I've ever seen.

  19. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Trafic

    In a way, it's a shame this movie exists, since Playtime was (as intended) the perfect goodbye to Hulot. The comedy that Tati conjures here isn't as rich, and for a moment it seems as if the modern world has won (you can practically smell the diesel). But it comes together beautifully as a celebration of pipe-dreams, and Tati still had a great eye for observation into the 70s. Screw it—I'm glad this movie exists.

  20. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Trafic

    Funny that Tati made this flm while JG Ballard was planning Crash, the novel.

  21.'s rating of the film Trafic

    Despite the occasional moment of comic precision, Trafic is dominated by an unexpected sense of apathy towards it's central concept. Tati, through Hulot, is less orchestral in the demise of good intentions, the comedy becoming less farcical and more abstract. As a critique of our struggles to adapt to ever changing technology it's still relevant, I've just come to expect a level of charm from Tati that Trafic lacked.

  22. Albrecht B. Christoph's rating of the film Trafic

  23. Stu Witmer's rating of the film Trafic

    This explains why the French think Jerry Lewis is funny.

  24. kimmgomes's rating of the film Trafic

    Não conhecia, nunca tinha assistido, até recentemente num ciclo sobre o cineasta no Centro Cultural São Paulo. De um humor leve, senso muito crítico e confusões hilárias. Adorei e quero assistir outros filmes do Tati.
